Hortus Duroverni is a complete and ingenious catalogue of the

productions of every kind and variety of flower, fruit, and shrub, cultivated in England. We do not think we are giving it too large a title, though the work itself only pretends to enumerate the pro- ductions of the nursery-garden of Mr. MASTERS, the curator of the Museum of Canterbury. The work is not a mere catalogue, though its form is tabular ; for the author has contrive d, by the aid of columns, to give every description of plant, flower, or fruit, which is necessary for understanding or recognizing it. This is an ingenious and meritorious little guide to the amateur of gardens.
